Exclusive Sneak Peek: No Getting Over a Cowboy by Delores Fossen + Giveaway (US/Can)

No Getting Over a Cowboy (Wrangler's Creek #2)
Delores Fossen

The golden cowboy of Wrangler's Creek returns home to Texas to discover some old flames never fizzle...

There are plenty of things Garrett Granger hadn't counted on losing—his child to miscarriage, his wife to another man and the family business thanks to a crooked CFO. He also hadn't counted on moving back to the family ranch, where he's met by another surprise—former flame Nicky Marlow, who is renting his grandmother's old house.

Nicky's been rebuilding her shattered life since her husband's death two years ago. But Garrett's timely arrival in Wrangler's Creek doesn't automatically make him the missing piece of the puzzle. Even if he does seem to adore her two-year-old daughter... Even if seeing him again stirs up old feelings Nicky would gladly keep buried, forcing her to wonder if moving forward has to mean leaving everything behind...

“I’m Garrett Granger,” he said to the women.

They stayed huddled, their heads together like con­joined triplets, and they continued to whisper.

“Gare-if,” the girl attempted. She finally tossed the stick.

“This is the Granger Ranch,” he added to the women. “It’s private property.”

More huddling, more whispering. Since the only one talking to him was Kay-wee, he looked at her. “Why are you here?”

She let go of him to lift her hands and shrug. “Mommy,” she said as if that explained everything. It didn’t explain diddly squat. She took hold of him again and started leading him to the porch.

The huddling women scattered to the side of the house and from there they eyed him as if he were a rattler ready to strike. Funny, because most women in town gave him sad, puppy-dog looks. Once, though, he’d been considered the golden boy of Wrangler’s Creek. These days, Garrett felt more like that dis­carded shit stick. For just a second he got a flashback of why he now had that shit-stick label. It wasn’t often a man got to see a video of his wife blowing some guy in the back­seat of a VW, but Garrett could add that to his list of life experiences.

Another woman appeared in the doorway, glared at him and then scampered off. Garrett thought about doing a smell check of his armpits. He’d been working with a new cutting horse all morning and was sweaty. That might explain the scurrying and rattler looks, but if he did stink, maybe that would just get the squatters moving faster.

He walked into the entry and looked around. Not that he could see much in his immediate line of sight. The house was a wooden ant farm with some rooms that had no purpose other than to lead to other rooms. It was a time capsule of sorts since it still had all of Z.T.’s furniture and stuff. Some things also left behind by his great-aunt, who’d lived here long before Gar­rett was born.

“I’m sorry, but you can’t stay here,” Garrett called out to anybody who might be in hearing range. The little girl kept hold of his hand, and with Law­son right behind them, they began to make their way through the room maze. Someone had indeed cleaned the place and taken off the old sheets from the equally old furniture. Not a good sign. In his general experi­ence, people who swept and dusted had plans to be around long enough to enjoy their cleaning efforts.
